Vintage Jenny | Easy Nine Patch from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

Talk about a classic! Not only is the Nine Patch a quintessential quilter’s block, but this is one of the very first tutorials that Jenny Doan ever filmed! This incredibly simple but versatile block comes together in a stitch using 2.5″ strips of precut quilting fabric (Jelly Rolls) and some basic strip piecing. Using alternating color ways from your available strips, you’ll create a “strip set” using three strips of fabric. All that’s required after that is to cut the long strip sets into 2.5″ strips and stitch the fabrics back together to form nine ...

Vintage Jenny | Disappearing Nine Patch from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

Quilters love a classic and there are few blocks more classic than a Disappearing Nine Patch! In this incredibly simple Vintage Jenny tutorial, Jenny Doan demonstrates how to stitch up this easy block using Charm Packs. First you’ll use your 5″ squares of precut quilting fabric to create a giant nine patch (which is just as simple as sewing nine squares together) and after that, you’ll use your ruler and rotary cutter to quarter your middle square. Flip those squares around and just like that, you’ve created a Disappearing Nine Patch!

Needing some more inspiration to create ...

Quilt Camp, Day #1 from From the Strawberry Patch...

Quilt Camp for our youngest grandchild began here this morning. Lynnleigh's been so eager to start her own quilt! At eight, having only just completed the second grade, she's the youngest Quilt Camper that I've had; but, probably, the most enthusiastic by a mile!  (And by no means does that imply that the others haven't been excited, not at all!) Lynnleigh is artistic by nature, she's all about

Star Sashed Nine-Patch Quilt from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

Star Sashed Nine-Patch by the Missouri Star Quilt Company.
Star Sashed Nine-Patch Quilt by the Missouri Star Quilt Company.

The 4th of July is getting close. Let’s celebrate with stars!

The original American flag had just 13 stars—one for each state, and we’ve added a star with every new state. 

Imagine those poor flag makers. Just as they mastered one design, they’d get the news: “Hold up, everyone! Kentucky is now a state! Start unpicking, and rearrange your stars!” 

(Sometimes the layout was changed every single year. That’s a lot of star shuffling!)

This week we’re stitching up a Star Sashed Nine-Patch in ...

Broken Wheel from Zarkadia Quilts

I don’t know about you, but this block has made my day. Back when I was a rookie quilter, I thought that this was a really complex quilt block, but the Broken Wheel quilt block is a piece of cake!

New Quilt Project from Quilting Stories

Fabrics leftovers

Panettone

It has been a long time since I started a new quilting project. Missing quilting...
After reorganizing my closet I found various leftovers, among which those solid colors, and I wonder wether they could match or not in a new quilt. I am thinking of a simple and quickly sewn quilt like a nine patch or a four patch.

I love the four patch quilts but I always found the most difficult to match the colors, and was often disappointed with the result. Sometimes the most simple things are the most difficult to succeed in.

As regards my fabric shelves ...

One More Little Finish from Needle and Foot

Look another little quilt headed to Jack’s Basket! As a result of my cleaning efforts in the sewing room, I put some scrappy nine patch blocks together that had been sitting in a pile for quite some time. It felt so nice to use up the blocks and make this sweet little quilt.

It is so bright and cheerful. I quilted straight lines on the diagonal. At first I was stitching across the wonky stars but it looked funny so I took that out. I think the stars look best without any quilting. The lines were just freehand with ...

The More I Clean, the More Mess I Make from Needle and Foot

Know what I mean? I keep pulling bins and zip lok bags out to sort and organize. Then I find something fun and ditch the cleaning process and start sewing. I suppose I am kind of cleaning up but if you look at my sewing room, you wouldn’t really know it. Hahaha. Surely this is not unique to me. Cleaning up a mess usually means making a bigger mess temporarily. However, the inability to overcome the temptation to play with little bits here and there is certainly slowing down the process!

Nine Patch Shadow Block from Wayne Kollinger's Quilt Blog

 Nine Patch Shadow Block

 

Frannie made this quilt from my 5 December 2015 post. And she did it the hard way using Y seams. Apparently she likes doing Y seams.

I think she did a great job. And I love the colors.

Fran, thanks for sharing this  with us.

The Dresden Blooms Quilt Top is Finished! from Jan's Quilts


Here it is laid out on the lawn.  Right after I took this, the wind came up, so the photo-taking had to move inside.  


Some of the Dresden Plates.

This is based on the video tutorial from the Missouri Star Quilt Co.  I changed 5 things.  (1) I added .5" to the large background squares, I made them 24.5"  

(2) The tutorial calls for the white strips to be 2, 3, 4, and 5 inches.  I decided on 2.5, 3, 4, and 4.5 inches, it's the little things.


Auditioning Background square fabric.

9-Patch Pivot: A new version in bright, cheery prints from Carried Away Quilting


Hello quilting friends! I’m popping in today to show you some blocks I’ve made for a cheerful new version of my 9-Patch Pivot pattern. I’m using the Lollipop Garden collection by Lella Boutique for Moda. Aren’t the colors glorious?


My 9-Patch Pivot pattern calls for just 21 fat quarters plus 1 1/4 yards of neutral, so fabric selection is fun and easy. The quilt finishes at 66" x 77". My pattern includes detailed photographs for both block construction and trimming. 


Here’s a photo of my original 9-Patch Pivot quilt, stitched up in soothing blues ...

Reprise and Somebody Had Her Face Washed from Fret Not Yourself

This is the other baby-size top from that old nine-patch exchange. The tan is the same fabric as the center of the previous quilt but the blue and red are different. And all of these blues and red were used up making these two quilts. Yea!

It seemed like a good idea to practice my new FMQ skills again. I used the same design on the nine patches as the first quilt. The outer tans have a new-to-me dot-to-dot from Angela's video. The middle one had the same problem as the previous quilt - it needed a "centered" design. This ...

Free Motion Quilting Practice from Fret Not Yourself

"The American people must understand that as soon as America doesn't stand for something in the world, there is going to be a tremendous erosion of freedom. It is true. And yet, it is awful hard to convince people of it at home."
~George H.W. Bush

From time to time I remember to check my YouTube subscriptions. Recently Angela Walters started a new series called, Help! How Do I Quilt It? which I've found helpful. She is extremely organized yet friendly and funny. She created a panel printed with all the blocks she discusses quilting over the ...

Nine Patch Top is Finished! from AnneElizablog


Finish it up 15!  2015, that is.  This 9 Patch quilt has been sitting in pieces in a plastic box for some time.  I pulled it out and realized that it was almost done.  So I finished sewing the blocks together, went out and bought some batting, and spray basted it.  I brought it to the DC Modern Quilt Guild meeting last Saturday where I began hand quilting it.  I am using perle cotton #8 to quilt it which is new for me.  I think it's going to go quickly!
